Control of Stormwater Utility Could Be Decided in Public Vote
Petitioners turned in almost 5,000 signatures to city hall today.
If just 2,022 are verified to be from registered voters, an ordinance will be added to the May ballot.
That ordinance would transfer control of the Stormwater Utility and rate making control of the stormwater fee from the Public Service Board to El Paso's City Council.
The city clerk now has 20 days to verify the signatures.
